 Informix old
Is there a way to get out of the original informix database and into something
contemporary. I have an old program designed for me and know little about
databases. I don't want to lose the data when crunch time comes.

Just unload your data to delimited files using the isql unload command:

unload to filename <select statement>;

get a schema:

dbschema -d <database> filename

Then you can install the latest and greatest IDS/XPO/UDO Informix
version, run the schema script to recreate the database and reload the
data there.
